Erv Barnes, PhD Author- BEYOND THE BLOOD CHIT

BEYOND THE BLOOD CHIT

by Erv Barnes, PhD

     ” I just finished Erv’s book “Beyond the Blood Chit”. A really good writer has turned into a really good author. Real world struggles with PTSD and the Vietnam experience set in the near future, this novel blends ‘right now, today’ with what could be. Fascinating details, characters you can relate to, and vivid description of scenery.”  Tom Wacker, Yuma, AZ

George Cadwalader Author- THE UNMARKED ROAD

      THE UNMARKED ROAD 

      by George Cadwalader 

      Marine Gunner Sergeant John “K-Bar” Caleb has survived everything the Viet Nam War could throw at him, as his many Bronze stars attest.  He has been one of the most admired, and the most feared man of his unit, until a grenade explosion sends him to Philadephia’s Naval Hospital.  There he violently relives his battles in recurring nightmares, underming the doctors’ efforts to save his managled arm and hand. 

      In a final gamble Caleb is sent for treatment in the hospital psych ward, where the windows are barred and the walls show marks where men before him have tried to claw their way out.  To regain his life again, Caleb must come to terms with everything he has seen, everything he has done, and all that he has lost in a prolonged conflict between conviction and conscience.
